  COVID-19 Announcement
  The Eldorado Backcounty Ski Patrol stands in support of other organizations in the ski community
  to do our part not to spread the COVID-19 virus.

  Effective immediately, EBSP is suspending all operations for the remainder of the 2019/2020
  season. This includes all organized events including, patrols, open ski and snowshoe, general
  meetings, board meetings and end of season party. This is an unprecedented time that requires
  organizations to be agile in how they operate. As new information becomes available and our
  situation changes, we will update this website. Please stay safe and stay well.


We are a volunteer backcountry ski and snowshoe patrol associated with the Eldorado National Forest.  Our members come from many different backgrounds and experiences.  However, we all share a love of the outdoors and of skiing and snowshoeing.  We work together to assist the public by marking and maintaining trails, patrolling backcountry areas and providing winter-safety educational programs to the public.  We train our members to become qualified patrollers, who are ready to help the public when the need arises.  We pride ourselves in being a professional organization serving the public with our skills, and sharing our love of the winter environment.

We welcome new members! If you have any questions about joining, contact us at

The Eldorado Backcountry Ski Patrol is incorporated as a nonprofit 501c3 organization.  We operate under a volunteer agreement with the 
U.S. Forest Service.
